Rum and Coke


Lime, please.

That will undoubtedly be the beverage of the week, as we travel to Barbados for the wedding of Ms. Keisha Grant.

I will be posting every now and then, and I promise pictures of the bride later in the week.

I may also pop up on Twitter.  After some arm-twisting (“all the cool kids are doing it!”) at World Headquarters, I signed up.  I made up my mind I’d only sign up if “GerryBrooks” was available.  (There are other Gerry Brookses.  I’ve googled.)  It was.  So you can find me at “@GerryBrooks.”

What will I do with Twitter?  I have no idea.  But I had no idea what I’d do with this blog when my news director (OK, Vice President of News) suggested it might be a good idea.  So we shall see.

Anyway, the wedding is on Barbados because Keisha’s father, aka “Daddy” is a native of that wonderful Caribbean island.  I look forward to seeing Daddy and meeting the rest of the Grants, and consuming that ultimate oxymoron.

Rum and diet Coke.

    What I’d give for a trip to the tropics! Before our little one was born, we traveled a LOT! I really miss it. And she looks at the pictures of cruise ships and gets excited (she’s 19 mos.) I tell her the deal is we can go on a big boat and an air plane when she doesn’t need her diapers anymore. So far, she’s not taking me up on the offer. 🙂

    Best wishes to Keisha! Can’t wait to see the pictures. I’m sure the wedding will be beautiful!

    Oh, and re: Twitter…..I said the same thing about Facebook. Now I’m on it all the time reconnecting with old friend and playing games. But I don’t understand the appeal of Twitter.

  2. Have fun! and my best to the Bride and Groom!
